Netflix Will See You Soon

‘Maniac’ is a forthcoming series at Netflix that will star Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, and Justin Theroux. It’s about the treatment–and manipulation?–of the mind. Its star power coupled with its intriguing premise promises to deliver a fresh storytelling experience.

And with each passing day, it becomes clearer that television and cinema are engaging in some version of experiential marketing. Treating a show or film as a brand isn’t new yet modern technology creates creative elasticity that attempts to bring the viewer into the show or film like never before.

Engagement is key.

If only there were cognitive professionals to sign off on this evolving breakthrough…

I may need to see some college degrees.

In the meantime, I’ll have to settle for just watching ‘Maniac’ on Netflix starting September 21.

‘Maniac’ Looks Superbad

A brand new Netflix series titled ‘Maniac’ looks superbad in a good way.

With a cast led by ‘Superbad’ co-stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, along with Sally Field and Justin Theroux, ‘Maniac’ looks like an entertaining mind trip. Escaping into this show appears oddly comforting as a creative yet twisted cognitive wonderland.

Haven’t we all said sang, “I’m a maniac, maniac I sure know” to ourselves?

‘Maniac’ premieres September 21 on Netflix.

Happy Monday

Fact: Today is Monday.

Better Fact: Today does not have to feel like Monday.

Mondays get a bad rap. But you have to feel some sympathy for Mondays as it’s the first day that follows our fun, relaxing weekend. That’s a rough, picked-last-during-recess kind of gig. Now, in an attempt to give Mondays a better reputation, let’s give that word a temporary substitute.

For the sake of this blog post, the word Monday will be replaced with the word jazz.

Here’s to that pure Monday jazz.

Sometimes, you just have to escape into la la land to hear a different, more stirring beat to that same old song.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

It’s Oscar Season…La La La

Will La La Land be Titanic at the Academy Awards way back in 1998?

Or Titanic the ship in reality…

The musical sensation La La Land has tied James Camerson’s cinematic epic TitanicĀ (and All About Eve) with 14 Oscar nominations. Released at the end of 2016, the film starring the much-awaited Crazy, Stupid, Love reunion between Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone is the it movie in Hollywood right now. Critics love the movie and, most importantly, fans love this movie. La La Land looks amazing.

Will the romantic musical dominate the 89th Academy Awards?

We’ll find out Sunday, February 26, 2017.

Until then, let’s watch star Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling (Actor in a Leading Role) discuss his experience making La La Land as Sebastian during a recent interview.

Hollywood is defined as a city of stars.

But the question is which stars will forever shine a little brighter than the rest on the night of February 26th?
